My 4th Anniversary of Blogging (02/12/2013)

Tuesday the 12th marks my 4th year of blogging. I built a free blog for personal growth & improving relationships. This is my 236th post which is an average of 59 a year. I’ve accomplished my goal of publishing once a week.

It’s a way to be creative & share ideas about emotional well-being & what it means in the world at large. In my social worker DNA I don’t believe that people should have to pay for the opportunity to learn about themselves.

The biggest change I’ve made recently is not buying any more pictures at all from istock. I borrowed that blog lesson for the new front page design of my website & all the pictures of Pittsburgh are mine.

I certainly have times of doubt, where I question the value of it for anyone else. Then someone will take the time to comment which I find very encouraging. I also appreciate that my hesitant moments are overcome in my work with  clients which produces new ideas to write about.

I took a writing course in Santa Fe a few years back in order to improve the book I’ve worked on for a decade. The comment that I walked away with from the leader was that my writing is all about substance.. I certainly wish my writing was more lyrical, though I’m satisfied to offer substance.

Thirty years before that week-long workshop I signed up to work with Native American Healers on my first visit to Santa Fe. I was given the Indian name “She Who Walks with Truth” by the shaman who led the workshop. I want the power found within my Indian name to translate into one of the greatest strengths of this blog.

My wish is that readers find the words in my blog to be authentic. That these posts help people in personal growth development & that they help people to be more real in their relationships with the people they love. Trust within yourself and in relationships builds on Truth over time.
